  • Jane Austen: Crafting Through History | Art Of Crafts
    The items that I wanted to show you today however relate to crafting I think it is fascinating to see people s creations through the ages and how we are still working on very similar pieces today It is a connection through time just as we may quilt so did Jane her sister Cassandra and her Mother In fact the first photo is a picture of a quilt created by the three of them It is behind glass in the museum as of course it needs protection to preserve it but wouldn t it be wonderful to reach out and touch something that was sewn by Jane Maybe as she stitched thoughts of Mr Darcy ran through her head The second picture is of a lace collar made by Jane The intricacy of this is amazing and it must have accounted for many hours of work Finally in Jane s bedroom we have her sewing box Maybe a little more ornate than the types we have today but in many ways so similar I hope you have enjoyed this little peak behind the doors of the house in Chawton 2013 is the bicentenary of Pride Prejudice and throughout the year they have exhibitions celebrating this Currently they are showing costumes from the 1995 BBC adaptation of the book you may just catch a glimpse of a wet muslin shirt and that has to be worth a visit Sign Up For My Free Newsletter As a thank you I will send you my two ebooks The Big Book of Craft Interviews Vol 1 2 and you will get access to my weekly newsletter Success You will now need to confirm your subscription to the Art of Crafts newsletter please check your inbox There was an error submitting your subscription Please try

  • Alternative & Non Traditional Wedding Photography Techniques | Art Of Crafts
    the style of photos people would like from their wedding The technology generation who have grown up in the 2000 s have not got the age of marriage and are looking for those unusual photos they take their inspiration from their favourite apps and websites Instagram saturates colours intensely as well as favouring sepia and black and white pictures Having looked at hundreds of modern wedding photos I have noticed that on the whole there is a large amount of black and white photos taken from unusual angles such as above the head with the bride and groom looking up or leaning against a wall sat on a bench etc My advice to photographers would be focus on taking as many different pictures in as many different creative poses as you can focus on using different levels of exposure and making the sun pop on the pictures The rest of the editing can be done afterwards with a reasonable level of Photoshopping ability Once the photos have been taken and edited the next stage is to offer different display methods Again in the same way that photos have changed so have the displays no longer do people just want a standard photo printed on photo papers with mounting around the outside and in a frame they are after something a little different Some of the more modern techniques include canvas split canvases where you will have the photo split in to 3 smaller canvases and then placed next to each other in the same way a triptych works or use alternative materials One of the best and most impressive looking materials that businesses who specialise in wedding photography in London use is aluminium you can print on to a sheet of aluminium and make your room look contemporary and modern
